Focus on California

September 6, 2006

"...[P]oetry goes back and extends through the tradition of 'Flor y Canto'--Flower and Song: Those sole things we, humans, leave behind us when we die: our cultivated flowers and our poems and our talkstory in all its glories, all its many patterns of practice."

--Lorna Dee Cervantes
